This field of medicine focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used to conservatively treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, such as back pain, neck pain, headache, pain in the joints of the: arms, legs, and jaw. We practice a drug and surgery free approach to healthcare.
Chiropractors adjust the spine or in the extremities which in essence is “putting the bones back in place” and helping restore the normal curvature of the spine. The purpose of an adjustment is to restore joint mobility and range of motion to the joints of the spine, arms and legs. This helps the joints of the body move and function as they were intended. It also takes stress off the muscles, ligaments and most importantly the nervous system. When the nervous system is able to function properly the body is better able to understand its own injuries and diseases so that it can start the process of healing itself.
